Donated data 2016-324-DD

Identifier 2016-324-DD
Data provider
Location Assateague Island to Metompkin Island, Maryland and Virginia
Summary archive of data that were derived from Landsat 5 and Landsat 8 imagery from 1984 to 2014, including wetland and terrestrial habitat extents; open-ocean, back-barrier, and estuarine mainland shoreline positions; and sand-line positions along the estuarine mainland and barrier shorelines from Assateague Island, Maryland to Metompkin Island, Virginia.
Info derived 19 Landsat 5 Thematic Mapper (TM) and four Landsat 8 Operational Land Imager (OLI) image datasets from Assateague Island to Metompkin Island, Maryland and Virginia. For each image acquisition date, the Level 1 data products were stacked into composite 6-band visible blue, green, and red; near infrared; and two short-wave infrared bands) image files and converted to at-sensor radiance and top-of-atmosphere reflectance. Adjacent scenes (Worldwide Reference System 2, path 14 row 33 and path 14 row 34) were mosaicked to a single image and then clipped to the study area extent.
